Out of fear of being expelled, the Brit Johan Jacob Schweppe wrote to the British government a letter in which he underlined that his firm could one day become of great use to the country, he kept the Schweppes company in London. Its mineral water, in countless varieties and with a diverse carbonic acid content, became well-known. He was supported by a number of great scholars, including by Doctor Erasmus Darwin, the grandfather of Charles Darwin, who praised the special mineral water in his writings. And that is how it happened.
